- Distribution Conveyor(1st Sorting Process): The employee hangs each garment onto the distribution conveyor. Each small hook may represent a route, a client, etc. The conveyor raises the garments up to the ceiling to distribute them adequately onto their respective power storage rail (PSR).
- Power storage rail (PSR): A great number of garments may be hung onto these conveyors at the ceiling level, thus freeing the floor space underneath the garments for other operations. The PSRs are motorized and controlled by a computer that efficiently compresses garments to maximize the storage capacity.
- Removal Conveyor: When a PSR must be emptied, the removal conveyor moves all the garments from this PSR toward an accumulation gravity line. Garments then slide toward a second employee, who begins the second sorting process.
- Distribution Conveyor (2nd Sorting Process): As shown in A, the employee hangs the garments on a second distribution conveyor, which will adequately distribute garments onto their respective accumulation gravity lines.
- Accumulation Gravity Lines (3rd Sorting Process): Once the garments have undergone the first two sorting processes, a third employee then begins a third sorting process, working directly on the accumulation gravity lines. This is often where garments are sorted by employee number.
